You don’t think the shutdown won’t lead to similar economic hardships for some people if it were to continue for an extended period of time? Or that is hasn’t affected people already now and during previous shutdowns?

Sure. Here's how I figure the numbers pan out:

Negatively impacted directly by Obamacare 60% of all Americans. (Conservatively)

Negatively impacted directly by partial government shutdown 0.01% of all Americans (giving benefit of the doubt)

What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.
